Can Anthony Bennett fulfill his promise? History suggests it will be tough

Sean Marks has no problem defending the minimal risk he's taking with Anthony Bennett, the Cavs former No. 1 pick who had already been traded, bought out and waived by age 23.

Sean Marks sees positives for Brooklyn Nets in Olympics

Plan B apparently included getting more international. In an interview with Fred Kerber, Sean Marks talked about a lot of things but none more passionately than the value of international experience.

Nets are proving you can tank without picks

There was never a right way for Sean Marks to rebuild the Nets. He took over a team with worse current players than just about anyone else, but without his own draft picks until 2019 traditional rebuilding flew out the window as well.
